Breast Cancer Survivor Melinda Joven
Melinda Joven, a breast cancer survivor of 14 years, as of June 30, 2011. She is now 61 years old. I did a modified radical mastectomy on her left breast cancer (invasive ductal carcinoma) in 1997, when she was 47 years old. The breast cancer was approximately 3 cm. Armpit nodes were negative for cancer spread. She took tamoxifen for 5 years. She is happy and I am happy. We both thank God for the remission. An inspiration of hope!
